The paintings inside are quite interesting and pretty well preserved (compared with other temples in Bagan) and worth exploring but there is no lighting inside so you'll need to bring your own. However, having said that, it's not particularly large and due to the lighting...More

The paintings are very interesting, though is you've seen the incredible UNESCO restored paintings at the temple across the road, it's a pale comparison. Still worth stopping by to see an authentic bagan temple.

Nagayon means 'protected by the naga serpent'. Inside the temple there is a huge standing image of Buddha, sheltered by the hood of a naga/serpent. On each side of it there is a smaller Buddha image. In the outer corridor there are many niches with...More
